Thomas Allen’s Book Art Photography

American photographer Thomas Allen
constructs witty and clever dioramas using figures cut from the covers of old
pulp paperbacks. Using salacious pulp art drawing’s of the ’40s and ’50s that
covered books such as ” I Married a Dead Man” and ” Marihuana Girl’, Allen
constructs one set of pictures up close while obscuring another, and in the
process creates a different context. Each piece is given a brand new storyline,
though never quite strays from their cheeky origins.
